Daft Punk Readies Live Album
- Words: Fred Miketa
The world-famous Daft Punk enjoyed a triumphant tour this year, performing some of its most epic live shows in the States, with sold-out dates at New York’s Keystone Park and Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival. December 4 marks the audio realization of the French duo’s performances, with Alive 2007. Recorded at Paris’ Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy (an 18,000 capacity arena) in June of this year, this anticipated release showcases Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo's hits throughout their 14-year existence as Daft Punk.
In addition to the single-album edition, Virgin is also releasing an enhanced version, packaged with a bound book, five additional encore tracks, and 50 pages of photographs from this year's tour. Not to mention, the two-disc offering is also bundled with a video directed by Oliver Gondry (Yes, Michel’s brother), which features tour footage shot by fans.
In homage to the album’s release, the duo recently hosted a live web chat for enthusiasts to get the dirt on its robotic mystique. Also in the works is a brief Australian tour with The Presets, Cut Copy, and Modular newcomer Muscles.
